Having My Mammogram Today
Friday, February 07, 2020
Early today at that. I like to get it over with. Then I"ll do a tiny bit of grocery shopping and go to a meeting and then home again home again jiggity jig
I am one of the lucky ones who doesn't find them painful - not sure if it's because our technician at the hospital is so skilled of if it is just how my body is shaped but I would have one every year anyway. Especially as so many women I know have been struck down with breast cancer - especially recently. A young cousin in her 30's, two friends my own age, another friend much closer to my mother's age. All just this year! Cancer does not discriminate. I don't intend to give it any opportunities to take advantage of my laxity.
I don't like surprises so I always take a peek at the images before I leave. So far I have seen no changes, no hints, no little white flecks or blobs. I will peek again today. And I'll say a little prayer for all women - that this scourge goes the way of polio and small pox.
